Making a great first impression is imperative to becoming an Ultimate Conversationalist
You’ve heard it said that you never get a second chance to make a good first impression. The fact is that when you first meet a person, he makes a judgment about you in approximately four seconds, and his judgment is finalized largely within 30 seconds of the initial contact. In a survey of the members of the American Personnel Consultants¾ those men and women who are responsible for hiring people for large companies¾members generally agreed that they made their decision to hire or not to hire a person within 30 seconds of the first meeting. And not only does this apply for big companies. It also applies in about any other human interaction you will ever find yourself in. People will judge you based on their first impression in about 30 seconds or less.
